A big thank you to Archivist David Marshall with the Southwest Collection on campus at Texas Tech University. He and his staff have digitized all our available past Mockingbird Chronicles newsletters. Our first black and white issue was published in 1995. In our early years, issues were not quarterly as they were for many years, but simply published as I had time to write, edit and do photo work. Back then it was also a much bigger task than it is now, when a PDF can simply be uploaded to the printer. Meanwhile, I'll continue to post photos, etc. of my many fond memories of 30 years of working with and for wildlife and keeping our web site updated. Here's the link:
